my ESPEE MODELERS ARCHIVE
California's Railroad to the U.S. 1861 - 1996
Prototype, modeling and reference information on Southern Pacific's EMD MP15DC locomotives.
Southern Pacific MP15DC
2690 - 2701
No need to worry about the quality of the ConCor, or kitbashes anymore; Atlas has released an MP15DC - while they won't have the trademark SP light show, it will hopefully be easy to add them.
Up until Atlas released their model; my personal preference would have been to combine 2 Athearn SP SW1500 shells, and drop it on the ConCor chassis. The Athearn shells have all the espee light packages, and being a newer mold has excellent details.
The ConCor unit runs very smoothly, with 5 pole motor, flywheels and directional lights, but the standard of the body shell molding is not up to todays standards. It also doesn't weigh a lot, so would likely need lots of extra weight, to pull a decent load.
RJ Waldman has taken an Atlas N Scale MP15DC and got it closer to what SP bought, detailed and weathered ready to go to work.
